in the winning proposal for the yap-constructo 2012/13, ‘the garden of forking paths’ by chilean firm beals & lyon architects, constructs a green maze, which creates an environment of slowness; a new scale for leisure and the unforeseen in a park that is otherwise insistently being pushed and transformed into a productive and lucrative space. visitors ideally relinquish orientation, leaving the rush of the city behind. this quietness will eventually allow a change in perception: slow, paused, useless, thus establishing a connection with their bodies through an unexpected sensual experience. this could bring a whole new understanding of space, capable of locating the body, back at the centre of architecture.
